About Atacand

What is Atacand?

Atacand, the brand name of the drug candesartan, is an angiotensin II receptor agonist that is prescribed to treat high blood pressure or heart failure. It works by preventing blood vessels from narrowing in order to improve blood flow. It may also be prescribed to help treat some of the kidney problems brought on by diabetes.

How do I take Atacand?

The Atacand drug is administered in pill form and taken orally once or twice a day, depending on the doctor’s prescription. Your doctor may increase or decrease the dosage to ensure proper maintenance of blood pressure; he or she may also recommend following a low-sodium diet. Atacand does not cure hypertension; continue taking this medication even if you feel well.

What if I forget to take a dose of Atacand?

If you forget to take a scheduled dose of Atacand, do so as soon as you remember and are able. However, if the time is near for the next scheduled dose, forego the one missed and resume the regular schedule. Do not increase the number of tablets or change the dosing regimen to compensate for a missed dose.

What happens if I overdose on Atacand?

If an overdose of Atacand is suspected, contact the Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222. Symptoms of an overdose include a change in heartrate, dizziness, or fainting. If the individual has stopped breathing or lost consciousness, contact Emergency Services at 911.

  • You are allergic to candesartan or any of the ingredients in Atacand medicine

  • You are taking any prescription or non-prescription medications, vitamins, or supplements

  • You are pregnant, planning a pregnancy, or are nursing a child

  • You have diabetes, or heart, liver, or kidney disease

  • You are taking any medications to treat hypertension

  • You are taking aliskiren, or other medication to treat diabetes

  • You are taking diuretics, ACE inhibitors, NSAIDs, or potassium supplements

What are the possible side effects of taking Atacand?

Some individuals have reported side effects after taking Atacand. Less severe conditions include back pain, headache, or a sore throat. If any of these symptoms persist or worsen, contact your doctor for instructions.

Severe side effects requiring immediate medical attention include signs of an allergic reaction (swelling of the face, mouth, throat, lips, or tongue, difficulty breathing or swallowing, rash, hives, itching, fever, hoarseness), decreased urination, fainting, or dizziness.

How do I store Atacand?

Keep Atacand medicine tightly sealed in its original container, out of the reach of children and away from the extremes of temperature and humidity. Dispose of any unused or expired pills according to the recommendations of a pharmacist.
